Part of the Sanctum of the Archmage saga was developed in the form of a pair of Computer-based Role-Playing Game (CRPG) modules for the Aurora Engine and toolset used by Neverwinter Nights. Earlier versions of these first two “module chapters” were available for download, and were inducted into the modules Hall of Fame at IGN’s (sadly now defunct) Neverwinter Nights Vault. (The top modules ranking has been preserved here; the Sanctum modules were listed at numbers 32 and 42, respectively.) With the disappearance of IGN’s NWN Vault, a new project page for the modules has been created here:
The part of the saga developed in game module form corresponds roughly to the second of the planned Sanctum of the Archmage novels: The Sight. In them, the player assumes the role of the protagonist of the saga, a mysterious figure known as “The Miracle Worker.” Gifted with a unique kind of foresight that may prove to be the only hope for defeating the Warlord, he becomes the close friend and ally of the deposed princess (or prince) of Carlissa, now the only surviving member of the royal family. And together, they struggle to turn a fragile rebel force into a powerful alliance that could free their kingdom from the ravages of the demon horde.
As of summer 2013, further work on the game modules has been suspended until further notice. This includes the completion of Chapter 3 and any work on Chapters 4-7. This is being done in order to make time to complete and begin publishing the Sanctum of the Archmage novels. The unfinished v4.2 update of Chapter 1 and v4 remake of Chapter 2 are still under development and should be released in 2016.
I do have a strong interest in developing more of the story in the RPG module form, and hope that I will have the time and resources to return to it one day.
